The Gingers Page

Ginger : n. an aromatic rootstock (rhizome) of a species of Zingiber ( Zingiber officinale} used in eastern culinary preparation as a pungent spice and increasingly the world over as a flavouring agent and spice in various cuisines. Important herb in Ayurved, ancient Indian system of medicine and other ethnic alternative medical practice.

Ginger: n. a friend in school. He had orange/red coloured hair. We christened him Ginger (nobody ever knew why) though Red would have been more appropriate.

Ginger: n. hot and spicy member of the Spice Girls group.

The Gingers are not only beautiful horticultural plants but they also form an important part of commerce in the agricultural economics of Asian countries. Many important spices and flavouring agents used throughout the world like Cardamom, Ginger, Turmeric, Galangal, are produced from the dried and powdered rhizomes of different species of different Genera of the Zingiberaceae. Listed below are the Gingers we grow and supply.
